Cold-Pressed Juicing

20160410_181018.jpg

“According to the cold-pressed converted, these juices contain more vitamins, minerals and enzymes than those made with a traditional centrifugal machine. It’s all in the method, apparently, as the fresh fruit and vegetables are, as the name suggests, “pressed” so the maximum amount of nectar is extracted from the pulp and fibre, leaving a raw and fresh juice.” – Body + Soul

I know there’s a constant debate about juicing and smoothie-making, but why not do both??  Through juicing, you’re able to get more vitamins and minerals than you’d comfortably be able to eat in a day.  And if you’re worried about the lack of fibre from juicing, there are several other ways to get your daily fibre intake.

We own a Hurom juicer and it’s pretty amazing.  The latest model is easy to use and easy to clean, and I love that it has a plug to stop the juice from coming out when you don’t need it to dispense!

My 3-year old niece helped me juice this past weekend, and I’m still amazed that I was able to keep her attention span for an hour of juicing.  We created this incredibly healthy cold-pressed juice consisting of celery, carrots, cucumber, apples, spinach and kale!

Voila!
Juice for an army of health-seekers!

We also really love to juice ginger and turn it into ice cubes to add to our veggie juices or in our soda water/lemon/ginger drink!

What do you love to juice, or what is your favourite mix to get from juiceries?
